COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve found the key to what makes Fall so special, and its called Octoberfest. This rich, smooth lager uses a perfect balance of caramel, pale, cara-pils and black malts to create the best Octoberfest beer of the season. Available September through October.

"Oktoberest" 12 oz bottle. This is one of the most attractive looking oktoberfest beers, it is a clear orange with a foamy ivory colored head. The smell is very fruity, more so than most, but it works. It is tangy and it doesn’t embody the typical nuttiness of the oktoberfest. The taste is more like your standard oktoberfest. It has some diacetyl and a very plasticy flavor. It is a mar on the smell and appearance. It is probably one worth skipping. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-21-2010 02:46:19

The Oktoberfest aroma is of some quite bold malt and hops, typical of lagers, and not weak at all. Appearance is pale amber, with little head. The taste isn’t anything amazing, but it’s at the right level of sweetness and sourness. Good, appropriate palate. This beer isn’t the best of it’s kind, and not the best from Schell, but it’s still a nice beer to have every now and then.

bbrock81 (305) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle from sampler pack. Good example of Oktoberfest beer - nice malty, bready, biscuity aroma and flavor to follow right along. Perhaps a bit milder in both than the best of the style, but still better than most examples.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Aroma is sweetish malts, earthy and a hint of oxidation. The flavor is malts, fruit, mild earthiness and a tart finish.

jake65 (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle: Dark golden orange pour with a wispy layer of white head. Sweet lager malt aroma with a tangy floral spice that hints at cloves. Tastes gentle with abundant malty sweetness and very light floral hops. Nice session brew.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper pour, little carbonation and a rich aroma of caramel. Flavor is rich malt, caramel and very sweet and nutty on the aftertaste. Not bad, decent for an Oktoberfest beer.

arminjewell (6414) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Pours clear orange-red with white head, aroma of a touch of bread, caramel. Taste is pretty plain, some notes of biscuit, bread, earth and caramel, with a watery finish. Not the greatest...

cbfobes (2340) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear amber with a nice white head, aroma is of sweet malt with some bread notes, the flavor is straight forward and malty and plain overall, meh.

Nsanders (565) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Pours amber with very fine carbonation. Slight alcohol aroma, very little flavor. Felt like i was drinking a flavorless light macrobrew. This was the most boring beer i have tried from Schell.

Dogbrick (8657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 On draught at Ed’s (No Name) Bar in Winona. The beer is a clear slightly reddish-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Sweet bready malt aroma with some caramel notes. Light body with a caramel malt flavor along with a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a toffee/malt aftertaste. Just average overall.
